Conker’s Bad Fur Day follows the adventures of Conker the squirrel as he tries to find his way home after a night of drinking. Hungover and lost, Conker finds himself venturing through a number of dangerous locations that include sewers, a haunted house, and even a war zone. Platforming figures heavily into the gameplay, but players will also have to solve puzzles that involve finding items, activating switches, and interacting with NPCs. Conker’s Bad Fur Day features numerous cutscenes and quite a bit of adult humor.
Conker comes equipped with a simple set of moves and a frying pan that serves as a weapon. Players can run, jump, swim, and use Conker’s tail as a propeller that allows him to cross large chasms. Conker can take damage and even die from being attacked or falling into traps. Pieces of chocolate scattered around stages can be consumed to refill Conker’s health. Context sensitive markers placed throughout the game often provide players with helpful items like the shotgun or alter the environment in some way when interacted with.
This game also features a multiplayer mode that allows 1 to 4 players to battle each other. There are a total of seven multiplayer modes that range from a simple deathmatch to races to capture the flag style competitions. Conker’s Bad Fur Day has a built in save feature that automatically saves the player’s progress.
